And that's a wrap! This weekend I finished up the Pergamino burlap tote bag, and I could not be happier with the outcome! Last week, I shared a few behind the scenes photos on the making of this new jute tote bag. It just wrapped up and is now available for purchase in our Etsy shop, just in time for the warmer weather.
The Pergamino is made using a light colored burlap cut from an upcycled coffee bean sack provided by our friends at RoosRoast in Ann Arbor. The pattern and text on this bag is truly unique - this is the only bag I have seen in my two and a half years of working with used coffee bean sacks, which makes this bag particularly special. The logo and weight information is offset with a beautiful tree image and green and red woven stripes. The bottom of the bag is a solid black cotton fabric that ties in with the black, flat woven handles. I decided to keep the accents pretty simple on this bag so that the beautiful print is the main focus.
Inside the bag are two slide pockets of differing width. The smaller pocket fits a cell phone and the larger pocket is good for grab and go items like keys, compacts, and more. The inside is a solid white cotton fabric. Again, I chose this color scheme to really make that exterior burlap pop out.
This is a large bag, making it a perfect tote for the beach, pool, or lake this summer when we tend to have to carry more items with us as we go. It's a good option for vacations or travel totes, fitting anything from magazines to tablets or books for long car or plane rides.
Remember to stop by our shop to see this bag and more that are available for purchase now!
